's turning. are there other sectors like energy other other places that you think are fun to be in a good position? >> you know, when i comes to things like energy and commodities, i like to look for the companies either that are able to get the stuff from here to there or are figuring out how to get away without using quite so much of it. the obvious energy names, i think that's pretty well done. although i can't comment to be an expert on the names in the sector. house sg on its way back. and then you may start wanting to look for, you know, who benefits in the second derivative from those -- from the strength we're going to see in the housing market. >> other key themes, yesterday we is spoke with byron lein who gave us a list of predictions. one of them was the energy sector who said because you're going to see so much more production, you could see a drop in oil to $70. >> that's the privilege of watching this on an airplane yesterday. i saw byron's interview. and i know he came off pass mystic. remember there are some powerful, marginal players in the energy market. we need energy p
and energy, not only for this year but the next three to five years out. i think financial services deserves also a close look as well with many healthy financial services companies and, of course, what they have done to de-leverage. would i say those three areas before i would look at and focus on with high marks towards energy and some telecom as well. information technology. >> all right, jeff? >> yeah. we like large-cap stocks and in particular we like technology materials and energy. in particular we're actually adding to international markets. we think the valuation is more attractive than the u.s. markets so we think europe is another place we can put money to work. >> gordon, do you see any areas not participating that are warning signs to you or that are opportunities where you can still get in at this point? >> well, one of the things that i've been looking for is a question of whether this whole business of austerity and cutting back is going to have such a detrimental effect that you won't see growth in things like materials and infrastructure overall. i haven't seen that so i th
coming in. as you can see, less energy. in terms of sectors here. most major names with big moves up last week. energy financials for example, look at sectors. all modestly to the down side today. i think the important thing that's interesting here is that materials are weak here. dollar is down today. that normally helps metal stocks. as you can see, none of them are doing much. but reporting in the next couple of days. want to know, gold stocks having a tough day here. harmony had to shut down mines in south africa because of strikes going on there. gold stocks still not performing very well. we will have an expert on at 1:30 eastern time to talk about the outlook for gold in 2013. >> welcome, good to see you, let's focus on the earnings season kicking off. you wrote about it a little bit this morning on your note. is that a real concern right now? >> i think it is. they prepared us, kind of investors for a weak fourth quarter. they have been talking about it for a while so it shouldn't be too much after surprise. i think the surprise will be the extent of really how bad it'll be, right
it be steel companies, energy costs are down. southwest air, i never recommend airlines anywhere, but you see them going up. raw costs being down, natural gas staying low. really nice offset to what washington can do. by the way, norfolk southern. look at the transports. southwest air. you have the federal express. this stock is breaking out. that's an asian play. norfolk southern had just been the anchor. truckers are still problematic. but if you can see coal shipments going up, because it's an incredibly cold winter in china, you'll have some surprises in transports. >> energy, in terms of the key costs, going down potentially. maybe that answers the question of some who say, hey, margins have been so high for so long, we're not going to have significant revenue growth this year if we get a 2% gdp number. can we really expect margin of improvement this year, and what kind of multiple do these earnings deserve moving through 2013. >> wells fargo talking about georgia gold. when you hear new housing, listen up. housing is the story, other than what phil lebeau was talking about last week. au
energy -- >> look, we're at a moment where i don't think anybody who's got a mortgage, they know they're getting a good price. the ohio regionals are going to do better. that welgs is now a sale. look, wells could go to 33. if it had been to 32, it will go to 33. it ran to $35.40, and the group got ahead of itself. but remember, this is a temporary problem. you have millions of people coming on air every day saying, the fed's going to have to raise rates. if that's the case, wells fargo is your number one stock. >> meanwhile, is american express adding to what morgan stanley has done, what citi has done, and that is trimming their work force. in this case, you could probably argue by a more significant level, right? >> and for different reasons, yes. >> that's really the pressure from the digitization of the travel business as opposed to morgan stanley. the digits getting smaller and smaller in terms of the profit margins there. >> i was thinking, you know, i remember thinking taking trips with my father in the '70s, you couldn't travel around the world without american express travel

, immigration, energy. these things aren't -- you can't put them on hold for four years, joe. so if i'm the president, i'm energized. and i use the debt to resolve the debt in a way that doesn't have blood on the floor. i use the debt to segue into dealing with all those other tough issues. build a coalition, a working coalition. i still think we can do it. maybe i'm naive. i think if the president leads, he can build a coalition and get things done on those crucial issues. >> the other thing we don't know, you know, when you have a second term, you are obviously the unexpected has more opportunities to happen. eisenhower is a good example. you never know, franklin roosevelt and the second world war, you know. there's -- things will happen. he will have to confront that we can't know about now. >> it has been -- talking about the unexpected. talk about newtown. that does give the president an opportunity to do some of the things he wanted to do. when we interviewed him for person of the we are, he was focused on the issues that, i think, he will focus on in the second term. immigratio

the wind energy tax credit. and even got the rates back to where he wanted to get the rates. now, we're in a divided government. you're not going to get every single thing that you want, but the president got some really big things, made some real progress. and if you look at the base line that everybody compares, you know, where the budget is to everything else, actually, this does cut the deficit by $737 billion. so i think the president made big progress here and we're going to have to see going forward how we're going to be able to deal with the looming crisis that we face in the next couple of months. >> bill burton has just shown why he was the deputy press secretary. and i mean that, bill, as a compliment. but, in all seriousness, he's giving the spin on that. so what do you say? >> well, i think that when you look at president obama's priorities, it's important to keep in mind that deficit reduction isn't necessarily his biggest priority right now, for the simple reason that there's a lot of anxiety among folks in the white house that if you have too fast of fiscal contractio

in congress, usually around energy issue, coal state people versus oil state people and so forth, but this is a spending issue that becomes more ideological and even cultural than even just fiscal. so, you know, they look at the northeasterners and think they're big spenders. usually with something like disaster aid, that kind of stuff is put aside. as congressman king pointed out, it took six days for them -- excuse me, ten days to vote for that aid for katrina and it's been two months and, yes, speaker boehner i think was concerned he couldn't ask his caucus to vote for this right after they voted for that fiscal cliff, but i think some of the democrats i talked to today on the hill said or the northeasterners said he could have had this vote a month and a half ago. >> could web having a similar conversation about the composition of the house? >> i don't think so. democrats have been remarkably united. in the previous congress before boehner took over, nancy pelosi got stuff done and continues to keep the democratic caucus quite united. no, we couldn't have that same conversati
